very happy new year 2006 !
i actually ride a r80g/s pd, after having done a "small not achieved" world tour on
a r100gs for more than 2 years and 70 000 kms.
i m more and more looking at the honda slr or fx 650, for travelling and riding
daily in paris + some off road in the province.
(sorry it s in french, it s just to give you an idea of the model, since there
could be some differences between france and england/other countries)
it seems nice, reliable, esay to fix, powerfull enough, air cooled, mono cylinder, only 161 kgs empty tanks so lighter than my g/s (i m
only 1m70, 60 kgs, not very tall and strong) + i don t consider myself as a good
i s less "gadget" than the transalp, less enduro than the xr650, so a good compromise i guess :-)
what s your opinion on this bike ? reliable, easy to fix ? are there any special preparation (i wrote to acerbis and overland prep, waiting for their answers, if you have any other good helpfull contacts) especially for :
- a bigger tank,
- a confy seat,
- racks for the luggage,
- engine protections
- etc ... all that could be perfectible and good for travelling.
i saw no info on this honda model : but maybe some xr650 parts that acerbis/overland prep, others make/sell, can adapt/adjust the honda slr or fx 650.
so before buying one, i d like to know if it s a good bike, if some preparations are available.
thanx for your kind answers
